Sunday update - May 26th

Theo has had a big weekend, and we have much to report.

First, we're happy to report that Theo was moved out of the PICU yesterday, and now calls a lavish suite on the 8th floor home. It's great to get a change of scenery, and we've even got a great view of Myers Park.

Daily dialysis has continued, and we continue to anxiously await Dubya's resurrection. He's been tired during the day, likely due, at least in part, to the dialysis which is known to make patients feel lethargic.

We got a positive test result from the renogram on Friday, showing that Dubya is taking in fluid. She's not yet spitting out much urine, but the team was pleased and thinks she is poised to recover at any time.

And, today, we got to take Theo outside.

Theo's first trip outside in over a month!
While he doesn't look thrilled in the picture above, he spent most of the time sprawled out on mommy and daddy on a bench in the shade. He even waved hello at some passersby, which was nice to see.

At this point, we are hoping for a discharge from the hospital as early as Tuesday. We're really only here for the dialysis, and we only live a mile away. So, if we need to return to have Theo dialyzed, we can. Our prayer is that Dubya wakes up, and we can go home without needing dialysis.

Thanks again for your continued prayers and support.
